How to make an Instant Coffee

Instant coffee is the easy way to create coffee ‘your way’ – choose a blend, start with a rounded teaspoon of coffee then taste and tweak from there.


You don’t need an expensive espresso machine to create a creamy, frothy cappuccino that will taste as good as one made by a barista in a café – give our recipe a go and share your tips with hashtags #nescafeanz #coffeemyway #cappuccino


There are a couple of expert tricks to making a great tasting cappuccino at home.


Firstly, choose a coffee that is ‘roasty’ enough to taste great in a milky coffee. NESCAFÉ Gold Original is one of our most premium coffees, crafted from golden-roasted Arabica and Robusta coffee beans it delivers a rich aroma and smooth taste that is perfect with a milky coffee. For a stronger, darker coffee you can try NESCAFÉ Gold Intense.


Next, how are you going to froth your milk? There are some simple ways to create a creamy, frothy milk. The easiest is to heat your milk to warm (but not boiling) on the stove or in the microwave and then whip with a kitchen whisk or mini electric whisk to create a creamy froth. If you have a French Press/Coffee Plunger at home you can pour the warmed milk into the plunger and pump the plunger up and down to gently froth the milk.


And if you want all the work done for you, try a Nescafe Gold Cappuccino – our creamiest, frothiest sachet coffee.

  • 1 rounded teaspoon (3g) NESCAFÉ Gold Instant Coffee
  • Water that has just boiled and cooled for 30 secs
  • Milk - full cream, light, or plant based
  • Sugar to taste (optional)

Create It!


Add a teaspoon of NESCAFÉ Gold

Instant Coffee to your cup. If you

like sugar you can add it now. 


Carefully pour the hot boiled water

over the cup contents almost to the

top. Stir to ensure coffee and

sugar are fully dissolved.


Add your milk, cold from the fridge

and stir. 


Taste your coffee. For a stronger 

taste add more coffee next time, 

for milder add less.


Remember to take care with hot

liquids and they must always be

kept away from children.
